More Waddling

Any time we beat Gardner Cox was a good day.  I mean, he
was an Olympic sailor!  I seemed to be struggling with something
in this picture; it was probably the jelly donut from the registration
table that I snuck on board. Dad's Murphy and Nye sail was his
 go-to light air sail.  I think it started out that way, but as the
day wore on, he probably wished he had the Seidelman on.
I liked the Murphy and Nye sail better because it had
cooler looking sail numbers. If you look close-up, check out
Dad's weather helm!


  1. Doc, if you look at the first pic in the previous post of Jim and Jill up close, underneath the forestay tang on the bow, there's a small white dot. That's a knot on the very end of the painter, which fed out of a hole in the bow. Pretty neat, huh?

  2. Love these old pics. Keep 'em coming.
